First Place: davee blu
This week was a huge shout-out to all moms…we hope all of you thoroughly enjoyed your Mother’s Day and you were spoiled rotten! As we saw in many of this week’s entries, Motherhood is an amazing job….but it isn’t always easy. The entries provided us a chance to reminisce, giggle and remember fondly our own adventures as moms. Keli Hoskins, one of our I Heart Faces Contributors, was our Guest Photographer Judge this week. We love her photography to pieces and knew she was the perfect fit for this theme. Thanks for your help Keli!
Keli said of this week’s First Place winner, Davee Blu: this image spoke to me in a way that I just can’t explain… I kept coming back to it over and over again. the processing and texture drew me in, and I got lost in the softness of momma’s skirt and the little girl’s amazing curls. and even though the mother’s face isn’t fully shown, that smile says it all. that smile brought me to tears. Congratulations, Davee! If you get a chance, visit her blog to read of this mother’s touching adoption story behind the photo.
Second Place: Jessica Deane
this little curly-headed momma in training made me want to go out and borrow a toddler for a day. or maybe I could just borrow her? that light is absolutely perfect. it falls on her so beautifully, and I feel like I’m right there watching her take care of her baby.
Third Place: Catching Memories Photography
Fourth Place: Lacey Nielson
I have to be honest, I think hospital photos are hit or miss. you have a gajillion machines in there cluttering up the background, and the lighting is never good. but this one is beautifully perfect. just look at that momma’s face.

Next week’s photo theme is : May Flowers (No Faces)
We are both heading to San Antonio next week to teach at our I Heart Faces Dream Big Workshop! We are so very excited to finally get to meet our wonderful attendees.
Since it will be a super busy week we are not having a contest. We will instead be hosting a linky where everyone can show off their very favorite floral photos! You can have one floral photo in your post or you can have a gazillion. :) Let’s get in the spring spirit and show off some beautiful colors of nature this week!
